Most Democrats today are to the right of the New Deal.


Dunno. I see people saying Sanders is a New Deal Democrat. Yeah, and so are most of the rest of them. I'm not disputing the party has drifted right; a lot of things under Big Bill C disappointed me, like "welfare reform" and "telecom reform" which led to Clear Channel taking over the airwaves. Oh, and DOMA - blarg. But the DLC dissolved in 2011 and the party generally doesn't seem to want another version of it. (Which is good, I never liked it.)

I agree there are Blue Dogs who have discussed partial privatization. It is not in the party's platform. Even BEFORE Sanders' people rewrote parts of it.

I keep wondering what is going on if half the people WANT a dictator fascist murderer to be in charge to take their homes, cars, bank accounts.

Well, just so long as the fascist murderer dictator takes those other people's homes, cars, bank accounts, they're good with it.

That's how misanthropic, nihilistic, destructive, and self-loathing cons are.

sometimes we misunderstand what people want because of circumstances

Voting problems anger people, officials during Michigan primary election

other times its wholly out of peoples control to express what they want

Forced overtime at Michigan women's prison is a safety threat

Quote:
........She said she has seen officers struggling to keep their eyes open and knows of vehicular accidents on the way home from the prison. Though the prison knows about all the overtime and, in fact, requires it, "if an emergency happens, you have to be ready," she said. If she's not, "they're going to come down on me."........


Quote:
....."By the time we get an off day, we're just too tired to do anything, whether it's personal life or family," she said. "We're just too tired. It's basically our day to catch up on sleep and rest."........

At Carrier, the Factory Trump Saved, Morale Is Through the Floor

Quote:
Twenty months after the president-elect reached a deal to keep blue-collar jobs from leaving the country, absenteeism plagues the Indiana plant..........


absenteeism? oh I see

Quote:
.........By the time the sun comes up, Nicole Hargrove knows if it’ll be a struggle to meet her quota at the Carrier furnace factory in Indianapolis. Six days a week, she’s on the assembly line by 6 a.m., when a buzzer sounds and starts a shift that is supposed to conclude with 1,100 newly built units. But lately, the line sometimes grinds to a premature halt, as supervisors wait for employees to straggle in — or give up and pull people off forklifts to fill in for no-shows. At the end of shifts like that, Ms. Hargrove and the others that bothered to come in have only 800 furnaces to show for their efforts........


by requiring people to be at work 6 out of 7 days at least 10 hours a day it means anything thats needed to be done outside of work requires time off and that means absence by default, also means increased exhaustion and sickness.

Prediction (pulled from my ass): the plant will be gone in 2 years. There will not be a peep from Mr. Tangerine Man.

maybe but the effects of working people such hours will be felt in our elections and politics for generations to come, we will see 30 % of the people appearing as half and perhaps be angered by it unwittingly.
